We draw 6 feet too. You shouldn't have any problem getting into Boot Key harbor, especially to the marinas
before the mooring
field. The bridge shown leading to the mooring
field is in a permanently up position.
The red markers are marinas
. Clicking on them will get many details and reviews
about each one. The three main facilities with fuel before the mooring field are Marathon Marina and Boatyard, Pancho's Fuel Dock
, and Burdines Waterfront. All have current
fuel prices too in the red markers.
If you pan the map over to the east, you'll see the bridge (blue marker - saying that it has been removed) and then the very large mooring field.
We spent a month on a mooring in the mooring field. Getting in there with a 6' draft isn't any problem at all especially if you're staying on the 16 larger (45'+) moorings. There is a section of the fairway toward the main part of the mooring field where there is a 5.5' bump. If you'll be going back there, ask the municipal marina that runs the mooring field for guidance to get around it.
